A few small Rhodonite crystals are embedded in the galena base of this specimen. These crystals are in fair condition, as most are cleaved or broken, and do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) along any axis. All have a deep red color and a pearly luster, and are transparent and dimly clear due to intense internal fracturing. The galena base is also heavily broken, and the piece is affixed inside a plastic specimen box with a hot glue.
